These past few weeks have been crazy for me. I thought that the New Year would bring a bit of relief from the end of the year rush at work but it seems that a lot of it has spilled over to January. As such, breakfast has become less of a pleasure than it usually is. More often than not, I have had to rush out of the house with only a cup of coffee to warm me. Not good, we all know that.
I found a really easy recipe for breakfast eggs that will not be boring â€“ as the usual scrambled eggs can be after a while. Here it is, Scotch Eggs, courtesy of The Indy Star.
6 large hard-boiled eggs, cooled and peeled
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 pound sausage (flavor of your choice)
1 egg, beaten
Spicy or Dijon mustard (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix paprika into bread crumbs.
2. Separate sausage into 6 even portions and wrap sausage around hard-boiled eggs with your hands. Dip each sausage-covered egg into beaten egg and then roll and coat in bread crumbs. Place eggs on a wire rack over a baking sheet.
3. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve with spicy or Dijon mustard on the side.
The best thing I like about this recipe is that you can pop the eggs in the oven, take a quick shower, get dressed, and eat breakfast. Then youâ€™re good to go on a full tummy!
